Edvard Munch

12 de December

Edvard Munch was born on December 12th, 1863 in Ådalsbruk, Norway. This painter was one of the precursors of German impressionism and expressionism. His work “Inheritance” portrays a well-dressed woman, wiping tears, with a child with syphilis on her lap. It depicts the vertical transmission of syphilis, congenital syphilis. We observed at https://www.josepocas.com/2018/09/a-heranca/ that the artist painted two paintings with the same title, one in 1905 and the other in 1906. It is possible to notice differences between the characters and their clothing.
